Stopped here for lunch with my huband. I had a cocktail he ordered a beer. My drink was awful, watered down and tasteless. They have a huge drink menu. Don't understand why they dont know how to mix drinks. We both ordered halibut and chips. We are at a pub should be good right? We waited 40 minutes for our... More

Great Irish environment. Love the sayings on all the wall to read. Good food and service. Was in Vernon for a couple of weeks and returned a few times.

The waitresses are Amazons, and the waiters are clad in Kilt 'n Sporran. The bacon broccoli soup was excellent. Decor here is quite nice. The Prime Rib was SERIOUSLY GOOD

We have been here before, and the service was fairly decent. Today, we were there around 1pm, and there was 2 other tables seated, with 3-4 servers. It took 10 minutes for the server to ask us what we wanted to drink, and then she stood around by the bar visiting with the other servers. After 10 minutes of that,... More

Usually love the pacho's but last couple of visits the serving were small, little cheese and only lukewarm. Pacho sauce was still as good as ever though!

Not good Food. Service was so-so. The only thing I would recommend is the drinks. It is on the main drag, if you're wanting a quick stop for an afternoon drink without eating, this would be OK.

The service was a bit slow, but the food came out delcious. Great drink menu which is always entertaining when with friends. The one thing you have to order is Pachos and chicken lips. The chicken lips are always juicy and tender, and you can load the Pachos anyway you like.

I ordered a chicken and rice dish. I only managed to eat 2 bites before I had to send it back. It was buried in tablespoons of grease. There was hardly any rice with the meal, so I asked for more rice and they wanted to charge $3.25 for a half cup of rice. I declined, as I couldn't eat... More

Slow service! Very average food! Burgers were ok at best and stir fry was ok but I wouldn't return as from beginning to end service was so slow! Don't order the Tuna tacos they have no flavour!

Always love their famous pachos, then now I found their fish taco and chicken lips that are very nice as well. This one can offer to sitting outside that is different than other pub style Kelly o'brains ^^
